As the teacher, I will pair students up and assign them a character from a novel. Each student has to write a letter to the character their partner represents.
Gather in Assigned Groups of Five
Students will have to complete two tasks. 1) Read their partner's letters addressed to their character and evaluate its accuracy and 2) Edit their partner's paper for grammar, conventions and organization.
Choose a Shakespeare Play
Once finished, find a library book and read until the class period ends.
Create a New Scene
As the teacher, I will assign students to groups of five.
Each student will send one representative to a Shakespeare play.
The group will use their assigned Shakespeare play to create a new scene to add to the play.
